Apps Explained

Subscribe-HR allows third-party Developers to create custom solution extensions that can then be published in the Subscribe-HR App store and offered to Users as add-ons. To get started with App building the first step is to create your App record. Objects, Elements, Relationships, Integration Processes can then be created for your App and be bundled as part of the installation package.

NOTE: before your App can be published in the store it will be subjected to a testing, validation and approval process which will be performed by the Subscribe-HR team.

Once approved, the App will become available in the following two locations:

  1. Under the General menu (left-hand side of the System/screen) > Development > Apps.
  2. Via the App Dashboard [coming soon].

Developers can access the App documentation here:

Apps can be installed and configured by Users via the Activation Hub [Coming soon].
